Cloud Computing

Cloud Computing Online Training and Certification

Cloud computing is an emerging technology through which an increasing number of IT services are delivered over the Internet. From personal messages and pictures on Gmail or Facebook, to more professional offerings from Amazon Web Services or Microsoft Online Services, cloud computing makes it possible to run a successful business without having dedicated hardware, software, and services.

To a large extent, cloud computing is enabled by virtualization - which allows for example, the decoupling of server hardware from applications and operating system storage.  Cloud computing and virtualization make it possible to buy and sell IT resources such as CPU time, storage, and network bandwidth, as on-demand and/or metered resources, similar to how public utilities are used. The result is that organizations can reduce costs and be more flexible, mobile and scalable while improving their quality of service.

Optimal Connections, LLC, and the IT Learning Connection, is able to bring you a selection of industry leading cloud and virtualization training courses through our partnership with ITpreneurs, a leading IT Training content provider.  Optimal Connections is also fully committed to Cloud Computing, and is a Training Partner Member in the Cloud Credential Council (CCC).
